Mary Jane has been cast!

Spider-Man is coming to Broadway in a new musical, which is being directed by Julie Taymor (The Lion King). The special-effects epic is budgeted just north of $30 million.

Wood starred in the Taymor-directed Beatles film Across the Universe. And rumor has it that Spidey may be played by her costar in the flick, 27 year-old Jim Sturgess.

Looks like Taymor is keeping it in the family.
